BTS’s Jin Confronted Park Myung Soo About His Past Behavior With The Group

The gentle badass of BTS.

BTS‘s Jin recently made a guest appearance on Park Myung Soo’s YouTube channel, Hal Myung Soo, as a part of his promotional activities for “The Astronaut.” The host and guest shared many candid and funny moments during the entire episode, but it kicked off most unexpectedly.

As soon as Jin arrived, Park asked him to take a seat at the garden table. He started reminiscing about the time BTS approached him in a bathroom, and Jin promptly said, “Ah! We met at the toilet!… Yes, and you said leave quickly instead of taking photos.”

For those who might be unaware, in 2021, Park himself shared this story and his consequent regret of rejecting BTS’s request for a photo. During KBS Cool FM’s Park Myung Soo’s Radio Show, he revealed that he met BTS in 2014 when they were lesser-known rookies.

In the past, 7 celebrities greeted [me] in the bathroom, saying, ‘We are BTS.’ They asked if they could get a pic with me.

But instead of taking the picture, he told them off, saying, “Hey, just go.” The second time he met the group was in 2018 when BTS had already hit global fame. They met again at Gimpo Airport’s washroom, and Park greeted them enthusiastically, taking the long-overdue picture with them.

He had expressed his regret at not treating rookie BTS well back in 2017 as well. During an episode of Park Myung Soo’s Radio Show, he stated, “I didn’t know these kids would get this famous. I should have treated them better when I met them in the past.”

Despite his remorse, Park probably didn’t expect Jin to confront him so straightforwardly on camera. He was visibly flustered and immediately tried to explain his perspective.

The situation back then was… I was going for a wee and BTS came coincidentally in a crowd and said ‘Look, a celebrity!’ So I said ‘Hey! Hey! Leave because I’m peeing!’ That’s what happened.

But when Jin reminded him that he was actually washing his hands when they approached him, Park was left truly speechless.

Though Jin didn’t hold back while talking about their past interaction, he didn’t have any sign of bitterness about it. Throughout the entire conversation, his temperament was more of joking and teasing the host. Once the confrontation was out of the way, the rest of the episode saw the two having fun together while playing games and even exchanging contacts. By the end of the episode, Jin even asked if he should make a reservation for a tennis match with Park.

While ARMYs are upset after learning how Park had treated BTS before they became well-known, many saw this interaction as indicative of Jin’s grace and maturity.
